About this trip

POSTPONED to 2022 - dates to be Confirmed ASAP!!

This ‘Far from the Norm’ visit to the Alps, is an absolute cream of the alpine crop tour where we explore not just one alpine destination, but three epic alpine destinations in one trip! We will experience: 

     - Chamonix, France with the highest mountain in the Alps: Mont Blanc 

     - Zermatt, Switzerland with its symbolic mountain: the Matterhorn 

     - Grindelwald, Switzerland with its notorious ‘killer’ mountain: the Eiger 

Arguably the best alpine destinations, renowned for their history, legacy, scenery and world-famous mountains each destination, we will explore the mountains and the legacies surrounding them. Be prepared to be awed by the scenery, which includes cool mountain streams, blossoming mountain pastures, the sound of cow bells, pristine mountain lakes, dramatic glaciers, and majestic peaks. And that’s not even mentioning the wonderful food, the friendly locals, and, of course, the chocolate

The best way to explore the Alps properly is to get up close. In our opinion, this can only be done on foot, but the beauty of this itinerary is that it is not reliant on your physical prowess. This is a hiking trip first-and-foremost, and we should be prepared for this, physically and mentally. But there are also ample opportunities to relax, explore other sights, or simply ‘hang out’ in town and ‘soak up the vibes’. And, if anyone wishes to take a day off from the hiking and spend the day independently that is no problem at all. 

We will go on some of the best hikes in each destination which take us to the best locations in order to enjoy the finest views, while still being achievable for most generally fit and active people. Travelers do not need to be top athletes, but should be in good physical shape, and have the correct equipment, in order to be safe and comfortable, and to enjoy the hikes.

We will use the Swiss rail system for transport between the destinations. It is reliable, comfortable and has the benefit that one can eat a snack-lunch, visit with other travelers and just take in the amazing scenery. Overall this saves time, saves your energy and leaves more time to explore within the resorts. The journeys are visually stunning as we travel through the Swiss mountains and countryside, so it is very much part of the experience. 

Join Alt-Esc on an Alps adventure through France and Switzerland, by scenic train and lower-impact hiking you will relish in the absolutely awe-inspiring views. Enjoy the scenery without having to be an athlete. You’ll always enjoy fantastic local cuisine, charming hospitality, spectacular scenery, and memorable accommodations nestled among some of the most famous mountains on Earth.
